TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Five athletes competed in four different events for the Florida State track and field team Saturday afternoon at the Crimson Tide Invitational and Virginia Challenge.
In Tuscaloosa, Sara Zabarino posted the best mark of her career in the javelin. Zabarino saved her best throw for last going 54.65m on her last attempt. The mark just outlasted her previous personal best of 54.48m. Zabarino’s mark today is the third-best mark in school history and is the 10th-best mark in the NCAA this season.
Amani Heaven had a great day in the shot put, as she shattered her personal record with a throw of 16.03m. Heaven’s mark puts her No. 8 on FSU’s all-time list in the event and is the fifth-best mark in the ACC this season.
Over in Charlottesville, Ruby Stauber was the lone Nole to compete on Saturday at the Virginia Challenge. Stauber finished fourth in the 800m dash with a time of 2:04.58.
